BEng Chemical Engineering
The Muscat University undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering will help you to develop excellent scientific and analytical skills especially with the current global shift towards renewable energy sources. Chemical Engineers are the ones responsible for the creation of everyday products used in our world today including the safe and profitable production of chemicals and materials required to create clothing, food, medicine, transport, home entertainment systems, etc. This degree programme is one of a set of undergraduate programmes carefully designed and offered at Muscat University to ensure you are equipped with the necessary knowledge, skills and competencies to be successful in your future chosen career.
The BEng in chemical engineering is designed to develop your engineering skills, in the context of a firm grounding in chemistry. Your first year will equip you with fundamentals of Chemistry and in later years you will go on to specialise at a more advanced level in the core engineering topics. In addition, you will study the important topics of business, management and sustainability, all the while developing and applying problem-solving skills. Your computer modelling skills will also be developed with a strong emphasis on process simulation.
You will spend your third year on placement in industry. This experience will be of great benefit both in terms of your development as an engineer and in your final year performance.
The BEng in Chemical Engineering aims to:
- Provide a thorough grounding in the basic principles of chemical engineering.
- Provide students with appropriately structured curricula, combining teaching in theoretical and knowledge-based principles with practical skills training.
- Produce graduate engineers with the qualities and skills that are in demand by employers and who are able to make a valuable contribution to society.
- Offer students the opportunity to obtain relevant industrial experience by providing the option of a sandwich year for an industry placement.
